Wow, we really couldn’t pack any more health-promoting goodies into these biscuits! Every single one of the ingredients is a nutritive powerhouse to help support joints, reduce inflammation or improve your pet’s health.
These treats are gently dehydrated, rather than cooked, to protect the precious nutritional value of some of the heat-sensitive ingredients.
Principal Ingredients And Their Health Benefits For Your 4 Legged Family Member:
Mackerel provides a good source of vitamin D. It’s high in omega-3, which reduces inflammation and helps lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Its eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) content assists in improving cognitive functions.
Turmeric contains curcumin, a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anticancer and wound healing substance. The curcumin in turmeric is hard for a dog’s body to absorb on its own, but when combined with a fat (in this case coconut oil) and freshly ground black pepper, its absorption is improved massively. That’s how we prepare the turmeric before we add it to our treats.
Green lipped mussel
Green lipped mussels are high in omega-3, including the fatty acids EPA and DHA, which reduce inflammation. These acids are found in oily fish but green lipped mussel offers something which oily fish do not: eicosatetraenoic acid, (ETA). ETA binds cyclooxygenase, an enzyme that causes inflammation. Green lipped mussels are high in glucosamine, chondroitin, zinc, and magnesium, all beneficial for joint support.
Kelp benefits skin and coat health, increases circulation, promotes healthy teeth and gums and supports the immune system. Its anti-inflammatory properties can ease arthritis pain. It’s high in iron, minerals and vitamins A B D E & K. Its excellent protein content assists in managing tissue repair.
Hemp seeds contain the perfect ratio of omega-6 (linoleic acid) to omega-3 (alpha linolenic acid) fatty acids which help to fight cancer and reduce joint pain.
Chia has 3 times the amount of omega-3 fatty acids as salmon. It also contains more calcium than milk and more iron than raw spinach.
Ginger eases arthritis pain by stopping the immune system from producing leukotrienes, which cause inflammation. It can also increase circulation for older dogs who may be a little stiff and lack mobility. It’s a digestive aid, great for upset stomachs, plus it’s anti-parasitic. Go, ginger!
Eggshell membrane & powder
Eggshells add calcium to your dog’s diet and studies have shown that the membrane can improve joint health.
Sweet potatoes provide a great dietary source of vitamin A, which promotes healthy skin, coat, eyes, nerves, and muscles in dogs. High in fibre, they are also a rich source of vitamins A, C, B6, potassium, calcium, and iron.
Spirulina is an excellent source of protein, antioxidants, vitamins E and C, and is high in B vitamins (except B12). Its omega-6 essential fatty acids (especially GLA fatty acid) give it anti-inflammatory properties. Spirulina has been shown to aid weight management, support the immune system and improve gastrointestinal health. Plus it has been used in the treatment of cancer.
“Our elderly arthritic cat, Calli, likes this crumbled on top of her food. Her mobility has improved so much we’ve been able to reduce her painkiller. Yeah!!!!!”
